The 7th Annual Camp Coletrain ...

We launched our first camp in BV in 2018 with an intention of creating an experience that featured unparalleled education utilizing the network of instructors that I've taught with, performed with as well have as learned from over the course of my career. We've brought in the best educators from Colorado, Texas, Nashville, North Carolina, and France! It was also important that we spotlight our instructor's talents so a large part of our camp includes free evening concerts that we invite students, their families, and the greater community to. The third very important component is showing off our incredible town and making sure attendees have ample time to explore, adventure, rest, and connect so they are walking away not only with real-world musical insight but also with memories that will last a lifetime! It would be an honor to include you in our vital roster of sponsors which allows us to keep our camp as affordable as we can for students while also continuing to attact world class instructors.
